      The past month and a half has been really sad for me.  The onslaught just keeps coming.  R.I.P. Mr. Conway, who made so many laugh, something we now seem to need more than ever.

      My condolences go out to her daughters Kidada and Rashida.  This has to be a very difficult Mother's Day for them.

      The actors are talented but the show is not great. I'm sure Wu feels badly for threatening to mess up her fellow actors' bags.

      I've already mentioned how highly conflict many Asian Americans feel about FOTB.  I've had conversations with friends about this from Day 1.  Most don't watch but they also knew that the show's failure might threaten prospects for a better show featuring a Asian American majority cast to get greenlit.  When you're a POC, it's not that difficult to understand where the conflict comes in.  I've said that from the very beginning.

      I didn't say she did.  I just stated that she left, which I had no idea occurred since I stopped watching the show after Season 1.

      I was curious to see whether Eddie Huang had anything to say about this (which he didn't, at least not publicly) and happened to run across this article that was written at least six months ago.

      Oh and apparently the showrunner left the show.

      I've only seen one season of the show and even I could tell that the show doesn't survive without Wu.  Perhaps she was conflicted about being the cause of her fellow castmates losing their jobs.  She was probably hoping for cancellation so she wouldn't have to deal with it.

      I'm shocked that the show has survived this long!

      Wu could've handled this better but the show is problematic, to be honest.

      Wow @Vee you're making me want to see this film all over again- it's been many years. Gentrification is happening in earnest in Oakland these days.

      Wow, there were reports that he went into cardiac arrest after his heart attack!  Larry King has had heart attacks in the past.  Is that why he's being released?  Is this story true?

      I hope so too.  

      When John Singleton checked himself into the hospital, the first news reports were that it was a mild stroke.  Then it became massive during his hospital stay.

      I hope for a much better outcome for Peabo Bryson.

      I'm wary of posting things before they're confirmed but from what I'm hearing, the prognosis is grim.

      I changed the subject because there are one or two media outlets saying that he is still in a coma but is unresponsive. He had a minor stroke, was able to check himself into hospital, then unfortunately had a massive stroke while in hospital.

  19. Absolutely disgusting that, in 2019, it has to be put to a vote whether you can be fired for being gay. It'll be great if they go pro-LGBT and settle this once and for all, but still horrible that this must be decided. Still.

      It's also depressing, for me at least.  All these protections being stripped away, piece by piece is like death by a thousand cuts to the national fabric of this country.  I can't say I'm surprised by any of this but still...depressing.

      I was hoping that it would not be as bad as what it has actually turned out to be.  It's so much worse.

      This is an interesting thread about why a structure such as the cathedral of Notre Dame would be such a challenge to put out the fire.

      Same thing happened to me just now when I tried to embed a tweet in the Movies and Music thread, which is weird though, because about 40 minutes ago, I was able to successfully embed a tweet in the Tennis thread.

      It'll be interesting to see what the longevity counter is on The TalkThe View has had a lot of personnel changes but comparatively, The Talk seems to have had more than their fair share in a relatively short amount of time.
